India successfully tests nuclear-capable Agni 4 ballistic missile.

India on Monday successfully carried out a night launch of the nuclear-capable Agni-4 ballistic missile from the APJ Abdul Kalam Island in Odisha, marking a significant boost to the country's military capabilities.

In a brief statement, the defence ministry said the "training launch" of the missile was carried out at around 7:30 pm.

It is learnt that the missile has a range of around 4,000 kilometres, and it is largely seen as part of India's deterrence against China.

The defence ministry said the successful test of Agni-4 reaffirms India's policy of having a 'credible minimum deterrence capability'.
